Stratification

Stratification

Mondays suck.

Over the weekend we see a dearth of reportable, recordable information occurring because legislators and civic leaders go to the house and start sipping on a cold one. The other problem to consider is this is the day when these nimrods return to work gumming up the process and trying like the dickens to maintain their cushy jobs doing no more than talking to each other, posturing before microphones and in general being of little to no good to the people paying their exorbitant salaries.

We pay $172 Thousand dollars for a Representative or Senator serving their first term! Really? How anybody can earn this amount of money for competing in a “beauty pageant” is beyond me. Oh damn! I remember! They get together and attach their pay to civil servants and military pay raises and inflate their salaries. They legislate their privileges and make them law. They live far and away from their constituencies in many cases. They remain out of touch with those constituencies. They do what they want, when they want and with no caring about what you want.

It’s one thing to be viewed through a jaundiced eye. It’s another to realize the jaundiced eye is the result of a debilitating disease killing a major organism. Local politics is equivalent to the organ filters and purifies the life blood of this American organism. But that organ is sick.
American government is severely stratified. It lies in layer upon layer of ignored responsibilities growing less and less effective in the governance of the people. Instead of people regularly requiring each lower level of government holding the next higher level accountable for its actions; the lower lies ignorant of its power to draw attention to the needs of the people supporting this structure.

Village, town and city government don’t hold state representative’s or senator’s feet to the fire when those representatives and senators sponsor legislation detrimental to the people though beneficial to the state and bureaucracy. Nobody stands in the septic waste and screams: “ENOUGH!”
Throughout history people have placed an inordinate amount of trust in those with honeyed tongues, glib and superficial stances on issues and persuasive rhetoric to gain control of the people may actually control the society by force of arms. Be they tribal leaders or presidents and potentates, they seek control by wresting it from the people with self-serving duplicity and chicanery.

It’s for the individuals closest to the people to draw attention to the problem. It goes beyond developing alliances may help the politician move ahead to bigger and better salaries and benefits; that politician must be the protector and bullhorn screaming the facts affecting the people lower down.
Political activism is essential in this day and age. This present presidential administration showed social media can get the voters to the polls; it can engage and energize their base to the point of electoral victory. It’s a fact a president isn’t elected by the people. He’s elected by the majority of the minority voting. And for that reason, historically the lazy and disaffected not voting are the ones propel scalawags and scurrilous hustlers into prominent office.

The responsibility of developing government and government policy is that of the people: not of those they elect. The politician trips the lever casts a vote. The citizen is the one tells the politician what lever the people want tripped. It’s like having a child. If you leave a child to do as it pleases the child will get into mischief, eat foods not good for its young system and toddle full-bore into jeopardy in the street it seeks to explore.

But, if you take the child’s hand and guide him through life, teaching and leading and influencing them until good habits and civic involvement is a responsibility and duty of service to his/her fellow citizens, you develop a leader worthy of your trust. In that person the people may know good service as opposed to self-service.

County/Parish officials need to demand town hall meetings on at least a quarterly basis to learn the will of the constituencies. The state reps and senators need to do the same. The national representatives need to accomplish greater efforts to learn the will of the people and not that of their political parties. They don’t get paid by the party: they are paid by you.

Don’t ignore them and hope for the best. Command them and lead them.

Boots on the ground

Boots on the ground
By
Sarge

Scotland is still in the United Kingdom. That means Texas must admit the Free Texas Republic probably won’t be able to secede. Shucks! Additionally, it indicates the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations can breathe a little easier knowing the drive to declare them a parking lot for Massachusetts and Connecticut probably will go no further. (As “L’il Rhody” is my home state I feel no problem with stating the obvious.)

ISIS/ISIL is THE topic du jour and news readers are debating presidential press secretaries as to who in the Arab sector will drop some boots on the ground in the soon to be continual combat against Radical Islam. As was so astutely observed by Shepard Smith on FOXNEWS, the Saudis may pump oil based profits into the conflict in the way of supplies and comestibles (foodstuffs such as burned sheep entrails, housefly pate’ and clabbered goats’ milk in their version of MREs (Meals Refused by Ethiopians); but they sure aren’t going to put Saudis in boots either on the ground or toes up after combat.

Jordon says they’ll take refugees so it’s obvious they don’t want to tick off ISIL/ISIS any more than is necessary. Christian and Shia refugees attract these vultures faster than a road-killed “possum on the half shell” (that’s an Armadillo to y’all non-southerners). (Oh, yeah! My southern dialect is protective coloration lest I be evicted from the Sportsmen’s Paradise because I was born a Yankee.)

But I digress. Jordon is arguably the most secular Arab nation. The king shops in the best clothiers on the planet and speaks English better than people from Rhode Island (they have a “special”, “earthy” dialect all their own; sort of a grafting of Bostonian Brahman, Bronx cheer and Jersey Wiseguy.) But again I digress. Jordon and Qatar and Dubai and all of those peachy keen nations pushing the sand back into the Persian Gulf with Ski Chalets and Ocean Surf generators in the desert, don’t want a generalized uprising or insurgency of ISIS/ISIL infiltrators cutting the indigenous populations’ heads off for turning their backs on the Qu’ran, Mohammed and Allah. It wouldn’t be good for their portfolios.

Then there’s the rest of the Arab Coalition Obama says will help combat Radical Islam: Palestine, Cyprus, Lebanon and Southern Turkey.

Palestine was pretty much bombed back into the Stone Age by the Israelis, a particularly tenacious group of people accepting NO combat actions as anything but an invitation to beat the hell out of the attacker. Lebanon, to my knowledge is alive though they bear a tragic moral resemblance to Palestine after Hezbollah, Hamas and their buddies started shipping terror across the region. It isn’t likely they’ll start a conscription process to violate the tenets of the Qu’ran stating you WILL NOT kill another Muslim although they might sacrifice the Christians in the group.

Syria’s a moral wasteland (at the presidential level) in Bashar al-Assad and physically after he bombed and beat the landscape with artillery fire designed to kill as many people as possible. Assad’s theory is “kill ‘em all, we’ll retrain survivors”. No matter what happens; if the US sends supplies to the dissidents fighting to escape Assad’s regime or if we bomb ISIS/ISIL troops for those dissidents, our own munitions will eventually be used against us, no matter who wins.

Cyprus is located in the Mediterranean. It has no dog in this hunt. It’s like L’il Rhody again. It’s there, but who cares? It has no effect on the problem one way or another.

Turkey? What can you say about a country named after the guest of honor at a Thanksgiving dinner? They have the Kurds fighting ISIL/ISIS but there’s NO real all-out effort extended by Ankara. They have their own problems in the region and probably won’t get any more involved than they need to outside of letting bombing missions originate from US supported (bribes guaranteed through foreign aid) bases already extant.
So; for a day didn’t offer much hope for a coherent column it seems there’s something to talk about.

But I still can’t get away from being a Rhode Island native. (Sheesh! Cringe!)

Grasping at Sawgrass

Grasping at Sawgrass
By
Sarge

grasping at straws: to depend on something that is useless; to make a futile attempt at something. 2. trying to find some way to succeed when nothing you choose is likely to work 3. trying to find reasons to feel hopeful about a bad situation Free Dictionary by Farlex

Sawgrass (Cladium jamaicense) isn’t a “true” grass. It’s a member of the sedge family, characterized by sharp teeth along the edges of each blade.

Obama is noted for hornswoggling the American public for the better part of two terms as what he best approximates to a presidency (read Dismal Failure). His latest dose of verbal incontinence shows he’s trying to appear presidential, resolute and strong when his bowels are evacuating like a calf with scours.

There will be no combat role for American heroes in Iraq. This is true; for now. But, remember the guy plays basketball. This is another case of him trying to run out the shot-clock and leave this mess in The Levant for his successor. The Levant consists of Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria and part of southern Turkey.

“There will be no boots on the ground!” So what do you think you’ll do without the “boots on the ground”; you surely won’t win a guerrilla war without boots on the ground, dug in and ready to stop the encroachment of the enemy. Technology is cool. It’s all glitzy and shiny and has a place in conducting military operations. But a missile launched from a drone 10, 000 feet up will only create a crater. It won’t unmask a covert (ununiformed) combatant and bring him to justice. As learned in Vietnam, and now in Israel, you must root them out of tunnels, destroy their habitats and either convert them or kill them. If one fails you must go to the other because fanatics never change their fanaticism and they don’t accept negotiations because they see themselves as being always right. (Now you decide if I’m talking about ISIS/ISIL or Obama.)

Nobody likes war. Anybody does needs a head-check and some rehab in a controlled environment. But ISIS/ISIL started this crap. We’re addressing them, their barbarous conduct and drive to take over the world.

This war is a part of our present reality because a religion morphed into a political horror story. It devolved from a man wanting recognition of the monotheistic system he believed was the true faith but paralleled Judaism. When Judaism rejected him and his “holy word”, he got a bee in his bonnet (turban) and went off his rocker. He retreated to the desert and started teaching his “one true word” at sword point. Some of the revelations are scary as hell’s fire and hell’s fire is the promise revealed for those not converting to Islam.

All you must do to understand it is read the Qu’ran. It’s all there and taught to every Muslim child from birth. It’s not a matter can be debated. Its “holy word” is inviolate and unarguable; period.

That’s what we’re up against. Millions of people accept it, they live it and they’ll die for it.

So Obama speaking about “no boots on the ground”, turning the sacrifice of our heroes into a cliché is a matter formerly called: “Grasping at straws”. It’s a desperate attempt at looking as though you’re doing something when all you’re doing is delaying the inevitable. Obama should fear his base will grant him the legacy he deserves, that of becoming the next P.B.S Pinchback, the first African American Governor of Louisiana (for 15 days); a man relegated to the dustbin of historical trivia. (He was a Republican by the way.)

So, that’s why the cliché changed from “grasping at straws” to “grasping at Sawgrass”. If you grab Sawgrass because you’re sinking in the marsh muck you stirred up, you’ll shred your soft, tender hands and release it. Then you’ll grab and release over and over again until you sink into the mire.

Good luck with that Obama. You, as a lame duck, are sinking into the mire no matter how tightly you grasp the Sawgrass. It’s no more than a bloody mess.

Recognizing the enemy

Recognizing the enemy
By
Sarge

This is another exercise in free writing indicating the same old stuff if cluttering the world and it almost appears there’s nothing to new to talk about.

So be it. We’re stuck with wars we’re instructed to believe aren’t wars and a logistics question posed to the United States military: just how do you send people to deal with people seeking to kill us without putting “boots on the ground”? Has the military developed combat house-slippers? Or will the “International Community” contribute Swiss Yodelers wearing Dutch Clogs (wooden shoes) to advise people as to how you run in desert sands in the practical equivalent of Crocs for Jocks?

It should be interesting.

The thing I find comical is how our “diplomats” want to debate, in public, what they see as important. Then we must listen to them beat around the bush (that’s bush with a little ‘b’ [not beating up] on George W. Bush. Thank you) rather than simply recognize Fundamentalist Islamist elements invading, conquering and assassinating anybody doesn’t agree with them just might have a drive to assassinate the “diplomats”. The problem will suddenly develop a greater sense of immediacy when the Washingtonian Fat Cats’ chubby cheeks start singeing in the fires of a war they refuse to admit we’re involved in. There’s NO “in-country-fact-finding-junket” ever been designed to allow Representatives and Senators to experience the thrill of having bullets whiz past their heads; IEDs explode in close proximity to their vehicle they’re riding in and generally experience the joy of unremittent hatred pulsing from people seeing them as an infidel and wanting to conduct a bullet penetration test on their un-armored chests and heads.

But, personal awareness has always had its dangers.

Then you return to the Home front and find the guy masquerading as a president is working overtime to assure us our latest, greatest threat isn’t adherent to the foundational laws of the religio/political system Islam is.

Oka-a-a-a-a-y, fine! If they aren’t Muslims what exactly are they dumbass? They aren’t Mormons. They aren’t Presbyterians. I doubt sincerely they’re Jewish.

So, let’s see if we can get an idea of who they are by looking at their names. ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Now, when you understand Obama doesn’t want to admit to anything affecting Syria, he calls the terrorists, ISIL. (See? He didn’t say we’d attack Syria. Whoop-d-doo!) But then we understand ISIS is a place where the evil-doers not only stage their operations but plan, recruit and train the Islamic soldiers practicing skin and throat integrity tests while time-stamping how long it takes to bleed-out a body; it seems obvious sooner or later we’re going to need to stop by and say “Hi”.
With our understanding there’s a politically correct (PC) way of addressing the problem we also understand PC clouds the issue. We need to look at the REAL name of the two allegedly different and confusing names.

OH LOOK! The first word of each name is the same! What can this mean? Let’s see. I-S-L-A-M-I-C. That indicates these two entities, no matter how hard Obama tries to lie his way out of it and misdirect our attention from the fact; ISLAM is the foundational identity of this/these states, Islamic People aka Muslims are members of these TERRORIST OPERATIONS.

It doesn’t say the Choco Chippy Puffs State in Syria. It doesn’t say the Tutti-fruity Rainbow Cereal State of Iraq and the Levant. It specifically and proudly says: ISLAMIC STATE.

Even Democrats can’t explain away Obama’s delusions any longer. In the words of a friend of mine who told me a story about a philanderer caught in the act; the man said to his wife, as he pulled up his drawers and walked past her: “are you going to believe me or your own lying eyes?”
No. I’m going to believe what I see and know and understand without out the septic spin Obama puts on it.

Islam, as practiced by Fundamentalist Whack jobs, IS THE ENEMY.

Now behave and prepare accordingly.

International what?

International what?
By
Sarge

Community: noun; a group of associated nations sharing common interests or a common heritage.

United Nations: noun: an international organization with headquarters in New York City, formed to promote international peace, security and cooperation under the terms of the charter signed by 51 founding countries in San Francisco in 1945

John Kerry, ace all American political hack extraordinaire has been walking around stumbling over his tongue, shape-shifting the message of our non-existent foreign policy as propounded by his puppet-master Obama and has been telling people we aren’t at war with ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant). Last week we were merely launching a large scale Anti-Terror Initiative expecting to develop a coalition of countries to combat this Fundamentalist Islamist army of hell-spawns seeking world domination under Islam as both the religion and the political entity it is no matter what Kerry or his fearless leader may say. This week, after Obama finally felt the need to step back from openly admitting his incompetence as a foreign policy maven and being told no matter how much money he managed to raise, the Democrats were going to lose the Senate in the mid-term elections and he (Obama) was going to get the blame for it as well as make it his “legacy” beyond being the first black president.
Kerry’s been babbling about some “international community” developing a united front against ISIL.

Just what is this international community? Where is it? Who directs it? Who are the members?

Is he talking about the United Nations: that Manhattan brothel inhabited by tired, illegitimate, feckless, and unresponsive whores trading votes for the substance and sustenance of foreign aid. Foreign aid has become the international dole off of which they survive rather than work to profit from their personal industry and labor.

Hell! The United Nations is more useless than the nipples on a boar hog.

The UN building is a place people go to meet, greet and be effete. The dilettante ambassadors lack any real vigor. They have a reputation for being unable to produce the road map showing what it takes to get from where we are to the notion of peaceful coexistence. The sterility of all but a handful of members is evident. That sterility, even though manifested and shown in the spent seed of flaccid diplomatic utterance listened to by no one and found to be without meaning to anyone, makes the organization no more than a registry of losers sucking up to the big boys when the shooting starts.

The UN is a symbol of what greatness the world could accomplish if there weren’t big money involved. It’s more a reality of how much humanity will behave as one thing, when really, humanity has done nothing more than change the hog wallow he rolls in for chauvinist, nationalistic purposes. Because of this the UN is no more than a declaration of ideals none of the member nations actually ascribe to at any given moment.

So. It’s a short commentary. Kerry’s an insincere, incompetent drone servicing a queen bee as presented to us in Obama. Kerry’s diminishing America daily as Obama shoves his hand up Kerry’s back-side, makes Kerry’s mouth move. Obama makes it seem as though Joe Biden is Disraeli or that American foreign policy exists just because Obama looks serious before the cameras. It’s hard to say if Obama ever looked more uncomfortable as when he was required to at least look presidential on the eve of battle. It’s hard to say if Obama ever looked as scared he might actually have to accomplish something to save humanity from the likes of the Islamist Fundamentalist Whack jobs seeking to commence the next Crusade to end all Crusades.

Stopping that Islamist overthrow of western culture is totally against Obama’s plan to fundamentally change America. So when Kerry shoots his mouth off concerning a coalition of the International Community he’ll first have to define it, identify it and show us it really exists before we can place our faith, hope and belief in a system run by men deserving NONE of that faith, hope or belief.

No mea culpa

No mea culpa
By
Sarge

All this bombast concerning Bill Cassidy’s statement Harry Reid runs the Senate like a “plantation” is funny. Or, at least it would be funny if it weren’t true. Harry Reid demanding an apology is akin to us expecting him to actually allow House sponsored legislation to be pulled from the lower left drawer of his desk where he keeps his integrity and character.

It probably won’t happen any faster than Cassidy issuing a mea culpa delivered to the left breast pocket of Obama’s empty suit. (The mea culpa is offered by patting the chest over the heart and means “ mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa – “through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault”; and is a supplication to God accepting responsibility for sin.) As Harry Reid is the last person (behind Obama) deserving of a mea culpa because of his definitely NOT being God-like, I think Cassidy is right in refusing to apologize.

I believe Cassidy should tell the fatuous ass to shove it into his rectal brain vault and go his merry way.

Another thing I find shocking is the fact a man I’ve admired for his service to our country and his attempted service in the Senate should stand in formation with a fecal smear like Harry Reid and against a fellow Republican rather than align himself with the truth of the statement.
Plantations are a matter of history. They existed and still do as tourist traps and historical statements of the beauty of architecture and quality of construction to last over a century. The horror of some plantation owner’s treatment of slaves is fact. Nobody will change it. But there is a corollary to be seen between the “plantation” mentality and the Senate as run by Reid’s governmental equivalent of Simon Legree.

Simon Legree, for those not reading Uncle Tom’s Cabin (you know I never thought about that analogy before- Obama turning the White House into Uncle Tom’s Cabin) was the violent, ruthlessly evil master of the plantation Uncle Tom inhabited. Legree was a vicious, barbaric, and loathsome man. Legree fostered dissension and distrust among his slaves. He kept everybody on edge and disobedience was rewarded with a flogging. Legree was a terrorist.

Enter Harry Reid. He’s a man known for his violent rhetoric. He’s vicious in his criticism. He fosters distrust and acrimony among those of lesser status in the hierarchy (which means everybody). He (for me) is loathsome and slimy and resembles the Golem in the Lord of the Rings. His manners and grasp of civility and the decorum he demands for his cohorts and he, is as well-defined as the Golem’s.

Reid responded to Cassidy’s statement with this little butt nugget: “With all the things going on in America today, that’s fairly insensitive. That’s really insensitive. Very insensitive. And if there were any statement that deserved an apology, this is it, big time.” With the way Reid rejects apology for his distortions, misdirections and outright lies absolutely and preciously showing his duplicity and careless direction of partisan politics, it can be said to be ironic at best and B.S. as usual.

Harry Reid is a walking, talking governmental toothache throwing America’s government into agony. With each movement of his mouth the Senate grinds to a halt because he won’t allow the Senate to move legislation forward. Yet, he constantly proclaims the Republicans stand in the way of progress.
He’s a true elitist cast in Legree’s mold. He benefits from America’s pain. He dispenses it like a true Overseer wielding a whip against any and all who disagree with him. He derides and punishes that which he doesn’t desire. He’s a political sadist.

For Harry Reid to demand an apology goes beyond irony to stupidity. For Colonel Maness to ally himself for a nanosecond with Reid is not only wrong, it’s disappointing and indicative of not knowing for sure where his principles are grounded. And, that’s something I didn’t expect of him: that he would demand appearance over substance and distortion of fact to distance us from truth.

Colonel? I regret you did that.

Bringing the Big Top Down

Bringing the Big Top Down
By
Sarge

With the Democratic State Central Committee of Louisiana endorsing a convicted felon in the 6th Congressional District race, we see people running around as though their hair’s on fire and their butts are catching. With proclamations of the Democrats being corrupt and interested solely in the chance to get another seat in the House of Representatives marked with a big “D” we must ask: you’re just now noticing?

Labeling the Democrats as “A Criminal Syndicate Masquerading As a Political Party” may carry the bombast necessary to gain a little attention but as usual it sounds rather like Cotton Mather, the Puritan Leader of Massachusetts history as he excoriated the obvious: man is an impure and tragically flawed creature not yet aware of his own debauchery. So; what does all of this matter other than the fact the Democrats in the form of Karen Carter Peterson and Shane Riddle have offered themselves up as manipulative dolts?

Yes, they have endorsed criminality. It’s the foundational element of Democrat politics since the ink dried on the Constitution and the Democrats were climbing from the primordial ooze politics is. From web-footed slug to knuckle dragging Neanderthal and later to Homo Appreciative, we’ve watched the Democrats fight the end of slavery, develop their personal military faction in the KKK skulking through the night, clad in cheap sheets and hoods to hide their cowardice. They culled the herd and gulled the populace with their then and now Populist rhetoric.
Of course they’re a continuing criminal enterprise. But as the power resides on their side of the Senate’s aisle there’s little to no chance of it changing over the next couple of weeks because it seems Republicans are no better.

In their effort to assure the people they’ve suckered into their circus minstrel show they call a political party, their token liberal Ms. Peterson is front and center to assure the voter base the party has their best interests at heart. As long as the elitists in the party can continue to subsidize the pay for play program of increased child birth for some and the execution of the unborn for others, we’ll see people marshaling behind scoundrels such as their selection of standard bearer.

The selected and endorsed candidate is apparently God’s wrath for Louisianans NOT paying attention to what’s right and proper but are more interested in getting whatever they can from the corpse of moral decency and virtue. The Democrats have feasted on that corpse until the bones lay bleached in the sun and there’s little more to pick. Vultures will worry a bone until it cracks laying bare the marrow once concealed at its core.
This latest act is no more than the display of a party regularly and consistently embarrassing itself with such thinking. There are no real policy plans making Democrats acceptable to the rest of the country. But, Obama and his band of mental munchkins are quick to entertain the people with songs by the Lollypop Guild. There’s no substance to their positions and there is no foundation on which to support the betterment of the people. The process, for Democrats, is to slather syrup and promises on the broken shards of bone they allowed to be stripped of its core.

It tastes good for these recipients of non-nutritive, candy-coated refuse sweetens the taste buds but does nothing to enrich, enliven and ennoble the people they claim they want to help by endorsing this fraud.

The candidate’s an anachronism, a throw-back to all we find abhorrent and unseemly. He’s the next to last clown out of the car in this centerpiece of a three ring circus. As the next to last, he’s totally forgettable and merely one more example of the comedy of errors this election cycle in Louisiana has become.

It’s time to shut the show down, collapse the tents and scrape the grease paint from the candidate’s face. It’s time to recognize he’s just another clown grown too old to be funny any longer and now, in the dimming light under this tattered and torn Big Top we know as the Democratic Party, he’s more an object of pity than entertainment.

Vernacular

Vernacular
By
Sarge

Monday is the day when we get to appreciate what the fools controlling Washington D.C. have said in the Lamestream Media. Obama said flat-out he never called ISIS/ISIL the “jayvee squad”. The media won’t do their job of reporting the news honestly, dispassionately and without agenda. We say: ROLL THE TAPE! But that would require the media remember where they placed their integrity, a daunting task in the best of times.

America was developed from the influences of European culture. French, English, Dutch, Norse and a catalogue of divergent nations were blended in a stew pot more akin to a cauldron. Many of the foreign nationals contributed words, phrases and the communicative “spice” creating a wonderful jargon we know as language today. But little did we know; our American culture would fall prey to the same problems all great social and political entities suffer: the growth of partisan government and that government’s drive to dissociate itself from its constituents to form a culture and language of its own.

Years ago I was told by a local politician feeling the need to bring me forth from my idiocy and salvage my soul so I may support him in his drive to be the propellant force behind government in this hamlet we both inhabit. He told me: “the reason people in government all have money is because their money allows them the time to dedicate their efforts to governing.” He of course included himself in this august assemblage of the governmental Illuminati. It didn’t matter he was about as principled as a hungry gator and as pleasant a person as a Water Moccasin with a toothache; he was sure he was ordained by God to lead us all to the Promised Land.

This is where we come to the point of recognizing the duplicitous talents of Obama and his short-sighted, disengaged, misspeaking and confabulating staff working overtime to distract, disrupt and disengage from the people they find dysfunctional in their appreciation of their autocratic and elitist administration.

I said all of that in the manner I did to show the use of vernacular to confuse the issue. The fact is the overabundance of words distracts from the message. The choice of words, or vernacular, confuses the issue if it softens or misdirects the thought. Vernacular is a dialect; a form of a tongue spoken by members of a social class or profession. It’s the language of a class; and in this case a class thinking it’s above and beyond the needs of the people put them where they are.

All I said was Obama and his staff, lie. 46 words versus 5 words. And, the words chosen in the first instance were selected specifically to draw your attention away from and obscure the 5 word message could have told the truth.

Over the weekend Obama appeared on Meet the Press (MTP), a once excellent format of political discourse and debate used to get government policy explained to the American people. It was a storied venue for non-partisan reportage of politician’s stances on issues. Now, it is no more, It’s more a platform for progressive politicians to seek air-time before the cameras and establish their reputations as sage and capable public advocates.

Recently, MTP took on the appearance dog droppings. It can look like peanut butter until you get close enough to smell it. But this week, Chuck Todd was the new host allowed Obama to show his true strengths. That would be none folk. Obama has no strengths once he must speak extemporaneously or off the cuff i.e. without a Teleprompter® or an earbud connected to an aide telling him what to say.

Take this like gem as an example: “I should’ve anticipated the optics,” Obama said in an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” set to air Sunday. “Part of this job is also the theater of it,” Obama said, adding that “it’s not something that always comes naturally to me. But it matters.”
“The president had been on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard Aug. 20 when he appeared before assembled reporters and pronounced himself “heartbroken” over Foley’s beheading by fighters for the Islamic State militant group in Syria. Minutes after his remarks, Obama arrived at a golf course, where he played a round with several friends…” David Nakamura (9-7-2014) Washington Post

There is NO theater in this. There is Pomp and Circumstance in the presentation and courtship of international diplomacy. But, there should be NO theater when speaking of our pain and suffering at the death of a citizen executed because he’s an American telling the truth of barbarians’ atrocities.

Obama’s theatrics show the depths this charlatan we call a president has sunk unto. The fool goes on to show us his lack of integrity by saying: “I should’ve anticipated the optics”. Why would you need to “anticipate” the “OPTICS” if you weren’t more worried about how things would be seen as you cavorted with friends and financial allies on a golf course? You said you were “broken hearted” not moments before you departed to play golf. You’re a fraud Obama: always were, always will be.

On OPTICS I would say this: sometimes you get it wrong because you mistakenly failed to do something right. Other times you do wrong because you choose what’s expedient and best for you; you choose to not do what’s right. And in that minor difference is the where political vernacular leads us astray from truth.

The Devil’s in the details

The Devil’s in the details
By
Sarge

The image of Obama, tired, tested, testy and rapidly gaining ground on understanding his self-inflicted lack of relevance was paraded before the NATO assembly today. The guy really looks bad. His hair’s graying, his jowls slacking and the fire in his eyes is apparently diminishing. Nobody in Europe is swallowing his hog spittle and bluster.

His lies are slowly catching up with him. He’s no longer the face of American acceptance of racial equality. He’s the specter of the reality people of any race can be incompetent. In Obama’s case he’s proving that daily and people are dying for the understanding of this fact.

Obama’s inability or, his refusal to accept the fact the Presidency of the United States of America is a position of dynamism and kinetic discharge in the furtherance of world peace and NOT the school security guard serving no other purpose than to observe and report. The Presidency isn’t a “wait and see” type of operation. It requires integrity of purpose, responsibility of action and strength in performance. These are all qualities Obama lacks.
Obama is a wuss; purely and simply. He apparently takes his marching orders from Valerie Jarret and others seeking to fundamentally change the way America operates and is seen on the world stage. This isn’t a case where “Dum-dum” the curtain puller awaits the finality of the last act so he may drop the curtain and claim he brought the production to a successful end.
But, this is how Obama conducts America’s business.

It’s evident, whenever he hasn’t got his Teleprompter® to feed him his oratory; he’s clueless and stammers in a manner displaying his lack of coherent thought on anything remotely connected with foreign policy. It’s suspected by some he’s taking his clues from a Poli-Sci graduate having never ventured into the real world beyond the halls of academia.

Today’s challenges: the Invasion (not incursion) of Ukraine by Russian Soldiers with Russian Arms and Russian orders to assist Ethnic Ukrainians; the rapid growth of ISIS/ISIL and the terror of their factual, actual and intentional drive to humble, shame and terrorize before destroying their enemies are only two of the problems of such monumental import. It’s not possible to avert our eyes, lower our voices and try to avoid addressing the issues.
This happened in Europe in 1938. World War II resulted. Millions died and countless more millions were enslaved by forces lacking the compassion of humanity. Those people who sought appeasement and mollification; those thinking they could manage insanity and the demented efforts of madmen seeking to subjugate the world; to crush all resistance by assaulting the sensibilities and sensitivities of those weaker, learned too late. America’s Greatest Generation responded when the smoke of over-stocked crematory cleared and the realities and horrors of the Third Reich were understood. They learned almost too late; but they learned.

Now, those of us, the children of the Greatest Generation have forgotten the stories told us by our parents. Our children have been educated by elitists of a Progressive political bent. Our children’s understanding of the world has been colored outside the lines of truth, fact and reality. They’ve been overpowered by a lack of simple sense to explore the depths of a man’s character and lack of past performances in the leadership of this nation and elected him to the highest, most powerful office in the land simply because it was time to be politically correct and elect a man of color. We the children of the Greatest Generation have allowed our parents’ memories to chill, frost over through the opacity and failure to see through that opacity and then solidify into a state we reject because it’s uncomfortable to deal with the coldness of our adversaries. We’ve failed our kids with our malaise and drive to stay uninvolved in their education.

From this insular chill we’ve experienced, we’ve failed to understand the real heat these inhumane and power-hungry belligerents cast off. But, now that frost is evaporating and we’re seeing the true nature of Russia and ISIS/ISIL and the heat they cast.
It’s the fires of HELL and it’s time people understand this. Each of these elements is before us as agents of the Hell of man’s turning toward their most base character flaws and seeking to overpower the righteous by using our leader’s inaction, duplicity and outright ineptitude in action against us.

Wake up America! The devil’s in the details.

He never fails me

He never fails me
By
Sarge

Each day I arise to the sun shining, the birds chirping and the clear and present danger Obama will screw something else up before lunch. He never fails me.

Earlier in the week Obama said: “The world has always been messy. In part, we’re just noticing now because of social media and our capacity to see in intimate detail the hardships that people are going through.”

What’s the matter; can’t your Blackberry get the updates? Maybe you need to give it to Debbie Wasserman Schultz (it takes an infantile mind to operate such equipment while playing with herself) so you can meet the rest of us staring a debacle in the making on the horizon.

Oh! Just so you’re aware, the horizon starts in the east each day; you know; where ISIS/ISIL is acting up, heads roll and blood flows like a river in the streets.

In light of the fact you have a staff supposedly collecting intelligence concerning this problem, it might be a good idea to attend some of the Security and Intelligence briefings held at least daily before you hit the golf course. They have no LED advisory signs to tell you what’s happening in the world each day. Also, it’s NOT a good idea to let the world know, up front, you have NO strategy developed and obviously are too stupid to ask if the military has any plans in their portfolios.

Now, going beyond that, aren’t you the guy showed his acumen with portable social media devices in your first campaign? Isn’t it your campaign program started the system of notifications across social media to ignite spontaneous discussions and “flash-mob” activity designed to show just how “hip” and “with it” you were? I guess the idea of looking at the Blackberry once a day is too much now with you wandering the world, junketing and vacationing on the cape and fund raising at all four corners of the nation at any given moment. Have you forgotten you’re supposed to be the employee of ALL of the people of the United States and NOT just those with a net worth over a million dollars? Did you ever really know this?

Aren’t there aren’t enough signal bars available in Hyannis? Do we need to move some of the yachts out of the way? Maybe you just can’t understand the text displayed in Bostonian Brahmin font?

Obama’s inability to squirm out of this mess he’s created is delicious. With his statement we have no strategy to combat ISIS/ISIL he’s distanced the military from his politics. He’s made our military hierarchy look flat-footed, illiterate and retarded (Oh! I am so sorry! I’m supposed to say intellectually challenged as Chuck Hagel appears to be most of the time.)

And it does NOTHING to prove to us and the world that you (Obama) aren’t retarded as well. Again, I apologize for the use of the word but I respect people who are challenged and will NOT associate Obama with them. People who are challenged have an excuse and my admiration for their making the best of a situation and excelling in their efforts to accomplish something.

Obama doesn’t even try.

The British Prime Minister had to shoot a spark up Obama’s butt to make Obama see ISIS/ISIL is a dangerous, fanatical entity needing to be obliterated. But Obama wants to send, not mixed signals, but totally garbled transmissions such as: ‘destroy’ ISIS”, “degrade and destroy” and then says we want to make ISIS/ISIL a “manageable problem”.
WTF?
I know his primary languages were Kenyan and Indonesian, and learned through steady recitations delivered by Frank Marshall and the selected readings of Karl Marx and Fidel Castro. But, Obama never seemed to grasp these men displayed supreme socialist directed intellect, but they were capable of initiating these thought processes followed by action.

Obama’s administration is noted for its fully engaged appreciation of inertia, not the dynamics of kinetic action.

And this is what we placed before the world as our representative. No wonder we’re in trouble and coming up from behind in a race quickly coming to the finish line.
